look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Slightly hazy amber color with a small but persistent off-white head, mild carbonation, and thick, glass coating lace.
Aroma: Toasted malt and caramel notes vie with tangy grapefruit hops, providing a rich and full aroma.
Taste: Begins with a sweet caramel note, followed by toasted malt flavors. Bitter grapefruit flavor from the hops soon dominate the taste and carry through to the finish, which is dry with a lingering medicinal bitterness.
Mouth feel: The carbonation is champagne-like with a smooth mouth feel, quite pleasant
Drinkability/notes: A pleasing beer, although to me it seems a bit over hopped for an amber ale. Still, it is not likely to disappoint.
Serving type: bottle

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.
The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.
The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.
This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
